The more chances I give
The more chances you take
I can't continue to live
With your same old mistakes

 

I'm tired of your apologies
For the things you do to me
When you say that you're sorry
That's hard to believe
 

How could you be sorry
Over and over again
If you were really sorry
The sorry days would end
 

I'm tired of being a woman
Who's tired of a man
That doesn't know when
Good love is in his hands
 

I'm tired of living a lie
Like everything's alright
But when I tell you how I feel
You just want to fuss and fight
 

By now you should know
Exactly what I want
But you hardly pay attention
So you probably don't
 

I'm tired of having a man
And still feeling alone
I'm doing the best I can
But I can't do it on my own
 

If I want and you can't give
We're wasting each other's time
Opposites don't attract here
You're attracted to not even trying
 

Your physical and mental droughts
Are draining me emotionally
I'm tired of doing without
But I'm not too tired to leave

Smashing Idea. Some scansion tickles might be needed,
But unimportant as I feel the Idea and hard work out-gunns any need for it!!
Well done that writer.

Rodrick,

How sad when a couple breaks up, but this one definitely needs a parting of the ways. Well written with such passion.
